Medical Marijuana: What Does Your Vote Mean on Question 3?

Find out what a yes or no vote on Question 3 will mean on Tuesday's ballot.

On Tuesday, Massachusetts voters will be asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.

Question 3 is regarding the legalization of medical marijuana.

"This proposed law would eliminate state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients. To qualify, a patient must have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition," the  Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.

Question 3 is one of six questions on the second page of the two page ballot in both Hamilton and Wenham.

According to the website a "yes" vote would allow for patients to smoke marijuana if it is prescribed by a doctor.

A "no" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.

Speaking as one of your anonymous, occasionally ill political leaders I would like to encourage each of you to vote YES on question 3. Thank you. I have to go now. I need a nap and a Twinkie
